When the Lightning Girl’s spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?

Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother’s web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.

As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal, the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare’s heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.

When blood turns on blood, and ability on ability, there may be no one left to put out the fire—leaving Norta as Mare knows it to burn all the way down. (Goodreads)

I didn't originally plan to start reading King's Cage so soon after finishing Glass Sword, but after that pretty massive cliffhanger ending, I couldn't wait to dive back into the story. I really needed to know what was going to happen next, even though I knew reading this book would make my wait for War Storm that much harder. I started the book anyways, and now I need the next book in my hands ASAP!

I don't want to mention too much about the storyline and spoil anything for anyone who hasn't yet read the book (or the series), but I think I can mention a few things. King's Cage picks up right where Glass Sword leaves off, and since, as I mentioned above, Glass Sword ends with a pretty massive cliffhanger, I was dying to know what was going to happen next for Mare and the rest of the characters in the story. This book is yet another wild ride, full of quite a few twists that I totally didn't see coming, and a few I actually did. It ends with yet another cliffhanger ending, and I'm currently dying once again to know what's going to happen next!

Even though I'm kicking myself for not having read the second and third book in the series sooner, I'm actually glad that I waited, because that has given me the opportunity to read the books back-to-back, which has been really awesome. Having to wait a year or more to get my hands on the next book in the series would have made me crazy. Just having to wait a little over a month for War Storm is totally going to make me crazy, and that's just a few weeks! Gah! Haha!

Overall; King's Cage was an excellent addition to this already fascinating series, and I'm now eagerly anticipating getting my hands on War Storm as soon as it's released next month! And, thank goodness I don't have to wait too long for it to release, as I know that wait would kill me. Here's hoping for great things with War Storm!

  1. At least it's only May I really get annoyed when I've got to wait a while for the next book as I've then got to re read the previous books so I can recall where I'm up to. Why is that upsetting? Cos it's taking up time I could be reading NEW and NEVER before read books ��


Thanks for stopping by! :)
